We have learned that there have been “thefts of opportunity” of the fifth floor of our building, primarily bags left in the hall.
DO NOT TO LEAVE ANYTHING UNATTENDED.
Some of these thefts have occurred while the owner was away only for a brief time.
The University asks that all undergraduate students planning to return to CSU in Fall 2014 make an appointment with their academic advisor as soon as possible before registration begins in April. Because the curriculum is being converted from 4 to 3 credit hour courses, you will need help in determining what is the best way to complete your academic program. You will be held harmless in the process, if you meet with an academic advisor – you will be able to graduate with the same (or perhaps even fewer) credit hours and you will be able to choose whether to follow the old or the new curricular rules. Please make an appointment for transition advising as soon as possible. If you are not sure who your advisor is, you can email email@example.com or consult the information available on the “Big Switch” web page:
If you are a photography major, you need to schedule an appointment with Professor Mark Slankard ASAP. To schedule, see Jan Milic, Administrative Assistant in the Art Department office, or call 216.687.2065.
In order to be “held harmless” all CSU students are required to meet with their advisors by March 7, 2014.
25 Under 25: The Emerging Photographer
Ryan Upp, curator
The Galleries at CSU
on view through March 1, 2014
In this video, recent CSU photography graduate, Ryan Upp recently discusses his first curated exhibition. 25 Under 25: The Emerging Photographer focuses on young photographers who inspired him.
For more information and gallery hours, visit www. csuohio/artgallery
Ryan’s Curatorial Statement:
As I embarked on curating a show recognizing the emerging photographer I quickly realized that all of the artists I felt drawn to were really quite young. The professionalism and expertise in the work I uncovered marveled that of photographers who have been in the business for years. Amazingly, most of these young minds are self taught and have created a support system for one another through social media networks such as Facebook and Instagram. I had discovered a group of individuals, working almost as a single unit, without the typical competitiveness and self absorption thats often seen in those attempting to make a name for themselves. They bounce ideas off one another, provide constructive positive feedback, and host outings where they model for each other’s images. I quickly noticed a reoccurring theme of the innocent human figure surrounded by the natural world. The work is timeless, provocative and has a universal theme of innocence. When we are young we seldom think of the future. This innocence leaves us free to enjoy ourselves as few adults can.

Born in New York in 1926, raised in France, and living and working as a nanny in Chicago for 40 years, the reclusive Maier was secretly a prolific, self-taught photographer who documented life in the Windy City for decades. But her thousands of stunning pictures were never shown during her lifetime and, in fact, were only discovered after her death in 2009.

While filming Question Bridge: Black Males, the artists encountered a compelling question and answer exchange between a younger participant and an older civil rights activist. The question, “Why didn’t you leave us the blueprint?” was posed to those who brought the civil rights move-ment to glory, and elicited a variety of different answers. Surprisingly, one response was, “We dropped the ball.” This sparked a powerful multigenerational conversation about leadership, mentorship, and critical social issues in the black community over the past 40 years and how to overcome the challenges faced by the next generation. In the Blueprint Roundtable, a live panel discussion event, established and emerging black male leaders in the Cleveland community discuss this and other questions in an attempt to dismantle communication boundaries between generations.

Lois Conner began her photographic explorations of China with a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1984. Since then, she has returned annually, traveling extensively and using her 7 x 17 banquet camera to describe the landscape, architecture, and people. Some think they are evocative of Chinese scroll paintings because of their elongated cinematic-like format. This exhibition focuses on her work in Beijing, describing its transformation over the past thirty years. Join the artist for a look at her career and work on the opening day of Beijing: Contemporary and Imperial: Photo-graphs by Lois Conner, on view in the Photography Gallery from March 30 to June 29, 2014.

Invitation to Stare: Photographic Portraits
Akron Art Museum
Feb 1 – Jun 1, 2014
Photographers have used their cameras to explore the faces of friends, loved ones, passing strangers, cultural icons and themselves since the nineteenth-century beginnings of photography. Portraits are meant to document individuals, but do these images tell us more about the sitter or the person behind the lens?
Invitation to Stare features many recent acquisitions as well as some classic favorites to view in a new context. Works by 26 photographers including Diane Arbus, Harry Callahan, Michael Disfarmer, Vivian Maier, Andrea Modica, Abe Frajndlich, Angelo Merendino and Jen Davis entice viewers to consider the relationship between artist and subject as we gaze at the person in the photograph.
